PICTURE PERFECT- Wedding weekend





Introducing Mr & Mrs Travis Card


 On Friday, my oldest daughter married Travis. She was a beautiful bride. She was the most calm bride I had ever seen. It was a small ceremony with only family followed by a reception at her father's home. It was just a huge celebration of love. The atmosphere was calm, very laid back and relaxed and we even had WAFFLE LOVE come. 


I am going to do a VERY photo heavy post today. I am full of happiness for the best weekend with my family.
My sweet daughter got married.
My heart was happy but sad for those who could not be with us.

PHOTOS countless photos were taken to help make them feel a part of the celebration.
The reception was gorgeous and the lights adorned the backyard and pool. 
Taylor was beaming.
She had done so MUCH work and was prepared. (so Taylor)
She had created her own DIY Photo Booth backdrop for photos with my new Studio Gold wrapping paper. It is GOLD glitter and she cut all the circles by hand. Then we attached to white paper and VOILA instant photo background. It was so beautiful and so simple.

I loved that everyone that could came to the wedding.
Matt and Kayla came from Huntington Beach, CA. I adore their sweet family. I love the grand babies. I had had surgery and was feeling AMAZING after the first day. So I treated them to lunch at my FAVORITE pizza place in Utah. Pizzeria Limonde (114th South).
We went to Thanksgiving Point- The Museum of Natural Curiosity on Saturday. You have to go there. I loved that Zach
and Ty loved it too. They loved playing with the kids. They adore the "babies" and are the best uncles.


I was taking photos and making personal videos ALL weekend for my husband, McKay and Seth. I posted them on instagram, Facebook... and made special private videos for my sweet husband. 
NOTE: When I'm out and about
my small Canon camera is (ALWAYS) in my purse. It's too hard to chase and hold kids with a big camera.
 


Trust me your kids will THANK YOU one day for taking photos with them. Zach actually loves photos with me because
he'll tell you that I'm his best friend (well, minus the "girl" he is so "in like" with)... more on this later.
 


We were constantly going to the the craft store for all the DIY projects that Taylor and I did for the reception. I went to Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts I think FIVE times in two days.  It's the mega craft HEAVEN. I am telling you that they probably think I am the "stalker" girl. I really was buying stuff. ha!  I was buying chipboard letters, adhesive, ribbon, fabric. Do you love my GOLD trimmer? It's now available. It's so cool to see people at my section. I loved seeing these two cuties at my section in the Draper store. Most stores are set or are close to being set. I loved seeing their reaction to my products and we even posted on instagram on the spot. They have the NEW Hello My Name is too.

This is my friend TC (yes, same initials) who came all the way from Alabama to be here for the wedding and my event this week. She does not have a Jo-Ann close by and so she kept buying all the punches and new HELLO MY NAME IS. I know she blew the "budget" set by her husband. I loved her reaction to my big &. She had no idea it was so big.

Now, I am going to post photos from Friday... WEDDING DAY no particular order. Just know these were taken to CAPTURE memories and the professional photographer will have the beautiful edited ones. I have the ones that were simply "telling a story" that I don't want to forget. It soon got dark and my photo time was over. I hope she got some good ones.


This is Travis Card. He has an AMAZING family. He is one of 9- yes, 9 children. Yes, his mom Terri was the SWEETEST lady. I can't wait to get to know her. She lives a little far from me, so we just met for the first time.  I have a feeling she has a lot of patience.


I would have to say this is my favorite PHOTO of the day because it was candid and I had no idea it was being taken. I am not even sure what was being said. It's just my sweet daughter on her wedding day. I love her! 


Taylor and Travis had the MOST fun and relaxing day. Everyone was taking photos and having fun. FUN was on the agenda. Here is TC and I. Note: my son Ty is the photobomb. LOVE him!  


There was a big movie screen in the back yard going with a movie for the kids. So POPCORN had to be available. I love it! 


She picked out the most beautiful WHITE bouquet and dress. It was actually a top and a skirt. Taylor was stunning. I am so happy for her.  


This was WEIRD. It was the first time when I felt "the loss" to not have McKay in a photo. I am with my two daughters here and yet, it's not complete. I have three beautiful girls and McKay was deeply missed. McKay we love you so much.  (yes, she will get this blog post sent to her)

Now, this is where it get's crazy. Taylor and I printed so many photos. Yes, the courtship was documented. We were still printing on the day of the wedding. This is their courtship documented in photos.


Please note: the photos were amazing in that they were REAL LIFE. These are Travis and Taylor memories. Due to the sun, the photos here look weird but they were stunning. The best quality can be printed right at home and makes it so fast and on the spot.

They had a video going the entire time which I loved too!
 


The photographer who came was a CANON girl too.
(printed with CanonPIXMA iP8720)
 
More photos....



I loved this photo of the newlyweds. 


REAL... candid photos are the best. Sorry Taylor!


Our boys... Ty, Matt and Zach. We missed our Seth since
he is also serving a mission in Arizona right now. 
Everyone was commenting on how much Zach and Matt look alike. They must have gotten their dads strong genes. Crazy huh?
PS the boys ADORE each other.


My boys and Kenadee. Yes, Zach is dating this wonderful young lady. I love watching him. She is the cutest girl and actually is so much like our McKay. (well, not as crazy- ha!) 


Taylor made the most beautiful pool floaters. They were white with gold accents and they put lights in the pool. It was so stunning and elegant. 


I love Taylor with Jaxon. She will be a great "second mom" to him. He adores her. I have no doubts that she will only influence him and love him in such a positive way. 


Well, she is my daughter. ha ha...
So many photos were framed and EVERYWHERE-
along with my Studio Gold TC gold sequins...
 

Candid moment: Taylor with Jaxon. I love this photo.

Now, I am biased my heart MELTS for these two-


Zellie and Maxson 


She will tell you. I am 2 1/2 and my favorite princess is Ariel and then name EVERY princess from Disney. She loves to be held and I miss her like crazy. I know she's at the age where she would spend the night at Papa's house now... she asked me, "Why is Papa still sick?" They really wanted to see him.  


This is Maxson. BEST four year old EVER- seriously the easiest and sweetest boy. He is kind and silly... loves Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles and is going to be an architect someday (well, he loves to build things).


Zach, Travis and Travis. I am so thankful they found each other. 

Not sure what Devan is doing here... but I had to show Tenneson. Best baby ever. He just is so sweet and let's anyone love him and hold him. Gentry was not wanting to let him go.


PHOTO BOOTH time.....  


Gentry and Kayla 


Matt and Kayla...
Oh, and I had WAFFLE LOVE come to the reception. 
BEST plan ever. They made the best waffles for everyone. 
Then you put nutella or strawberries with cream on top... you decide. MAJOR hit!!!


Zellie loved the strawberries.


PS... Zach dressed himself today. His sisters razzed him for being in all black. ha! Kenadee wore a dress like Gentry's- cute!


I have another grandson. I think he is adorable. He already gives me hugs and affection. This ten year old is special. I know he can count on me to love him just like the other grand babies.


It soon became dark. Many of our closest friends came. So many people asked about Ty and the kids on mission. We felt so much love. This is McKays best friends. Josilyn and Taylor Ann and more came. Gentry's best friends came. We had the most amazing small wedding and it was PERFECT!!!!! I love every single memory and photo. I will cherish this time and this weekend. 

Now, I am preparing for the BIG event. Yes, I leave on Wednesday for my event in Vegas. I am barely sleeping. It's a HUGE undertaking to have 300 people at an event. This year is BIGGEST year EVER. I have went a "little" overboard. If you are in the area, there is a store on site- Down to Details. You can find everything and my BRAND NEW products too. Yes, I am bringing STUDIO GOLD. Trust me... you will want to stop by even if you were not able to get into the event.

HAPPY MONDAY!!!
I also have a new show today on www.mycraftchannel.com.

Tracey said...

I just love all of the pictures! Taylor clearly had an awesome day and you have such an amazing family. How tough it must have been to do the day with some important family members missing. Especially Ty. You are all so strong and wonderful to continue on while he works on getting stronger. I have a very similar situation in my life right now and reading your posts and seeing your pictures both tears me up and helps give me strength. As always, thank you for sharing your family with us!!

Claire Spielman said...

Love,
Claire

The team at this place obviously loves what they do, as they were beaming the whole time, danced with us till the end of the party, and briefly joined the after party after dropping off our belongings at the hotel! We had a blast at Wedding venues and all our guests did as well.
